The Labour Party headed for a leadership battle, mirroring a fight for control of the ruling Conservative Party, after the decision by voters to leave the European Union last week led to upheaval in Westminster.
Angela Eagle, a senior Labour MP, will announce on Thursday that she will challenge leader Jeremy Corbyn who has been facing a growing revolt within the party, media reports said on Wednesday.
Eagle, a former pensions Secretary, quit as Labour’s top business official on Tuesday, one of more than 20 people to resign from Corbyn’s opposition policy team.
